March Town United made it four on the bounce with a 3-1 win over Team Bury on Saturday but manager Chris Bartlett says they need to start games better.

The Hares went behind at the GER but Liam Merryweather provided the perfect response, heading in a corner.

In the second half, Jordan Fiddes scored a header and Juliano Menezes scored his third goal in three games with a deflected shot to seal the win.

March are sixth in the Thurlow Nunn First Division, just one point behind leaders Debenham LC and with a game in hand.

Bartlett said: “We were a bit slow out of the blocks on Saturday but it was a good response in the second half.

Bartlett has demanded a fast start from his players when the Hares travel to second bottom AFC Sudbury Reserves on Saturday.
